LC Men’s Soccer Shut Out Lincoln Land 4-0 in Region Play

Lincoln, IL – The men’s soccer team took on Lincoln Land in Region 24 play on Tuesday night on Freesmeier Field at Lincoln College.  A fired up and motivated Lynx team jumped ahead when Silviano Vaz (Levallois, France) hit a blast from 22 yards out to the far post.  The half would mostly be dominated by Lincoln and would end 1-0.  The second half was more of the same as Lincoln played uptempo, possession soccer and controlled the ball the majority of the half.  Lincoln’s second goad came when Brian Werchek (Chicago, IL) dribbled by several defenders and calmly slotted the ball home to increase the lead to 2 nil.   The next two goals were brilliant volleys by freshman Cristian Castillo (Moline, IL).   Both of Castillo’s goals were high level finishes and it put the game out of reach for a Lincoln 4-0 victory.  Head coach Ben Massena said of his team’s efforts,  “I’m very proud of the team and how we bounced back after such a big loss last week.”

This brings the Lynx to 6-3-1 overall and 2-1-1 in region play.  The Lynx will host Heartland CC on Saturday, October, 10th at 1:00pm in another important Region 24 game.
